Quote from Warmland Women “Our Group were thrilled to present a cheque for $7,600 to RCMSAR34. RCMSAR34 promotes boating safety and provides year-round marine search and rescue services to commercial mariners, recreational boaters and the general public. Their volunteer members are a dedicated group of men and women who provide their time and energy to provide a valuable public service. They train extensively in specialized search and rescue techniques to maintain a level of professionalism that is expected by the communities we serve and partner agencies such as the Canadian Coast Guard, Land Search and Rescue, RCMP, and Ambulance Services. In the last 12 months, they have been on 17 missions.R- L Stephen Wiles (RCMSAR34), Nominator Hillie Zwaan, Pam Richmond (both from 100 Warmland Women) and Gordie Robinson (RCMSAR34).”
